Auburn Riverside stays in hunt for postseason berth with 12-5 win over Mount Rainier | Prep baseball
Auburn Riverside kept its playoff hopes alive on Thursday with a 12-5 win over Mount Rainier in South Puget Sound League North 4A action in Des Moines.
The Ravens (8-8, 9-10) will have to wait for the outcome of today's Kentlake (7-8, 8-10) versus Mount Rainier (7-8, 8-10) game. A Mount Rainier win gives Auburn Riverside the fifth and final seed into the SPSL 4A sub-district playoffs on the strength of its regular-season sweep over the Rams. A Kentlake win relegates the Ravens to a tiebreaker game at 4 p.m. Monday at Kent Memorial Field to determine fifth place.
Kentridge, Tahoma, Kentwood and Thomas Jefferson have already secured the top four places in league, respectively.
The SPSL sub-district tourney begins May 8 at various locations.
ALSO: Auburn closed out its SPSL North 4A season on Thursday with a 9-4 loss to Kentridge.
The Trojans' Connor McCoy was tagged with the loss, giving up six earned runs in three innings of work.
Auburn junior Casey Manning was 3-for-3 from the dish with one run scored.
Danny Torlai earned the win for the Chargers. Joe Wainhouse went 2-for-3 with two runs, an RBI and a home run. Joel Condreay was 2-for-3, including a run, a double and RBI.
The Trojans finished eighth in the North with a 3-13 record, 3-17 overall.
